Hatch Green Chile Raclette

Zia Hatch Green Chile Raclette


New Mexico meets the Swiss Alps with this easy and fun recipe that you can use for gatherings and satisfaction all Winter long. With the numerous options you have for meats, fruits, and vegetables, Raclette always stays exciting. 

We highly recommend purchasing a Raclette Grill, as it makes this dish feel much more communal and cozy, but if you can't find one online or at your local store, the stovetop will work perfectly fine as well. 



- Block(s) of Raclette Cheese (if you can't find a cheese specifically made for Raclette, you can use a Swiss melting cheese such as Gruyere or Jarlsberg, or Appenzeller). We recommend at least 3-4 slices of Raclette per person. 

- French Baguette, sliced

- Selection of meats (Salami, Soppressata, Prosciutto, etc.)

- Selection of Fruits (Sliced Granny Smith Apple, Sliced Pear, Pineapple, Grapes, etc) 

- Mini Potatoes, boiled (Red, Gold, or a Medley)

- Selection of Vegetables (Radishes, Broccoli, Carrots, Cauliflower, Tomatoes, etc)

- Zia Hatch Green Chile, strained, to taste (we recommend straining about 1/3 jar to start and more if needed)



1. Slice Raclette Cheese carefully into squares and bring a pot of water to a boil. 

2. Place potatoes in boiling water, reduce the heat to medium, and let simmer until fork tender (around 15 minutes). Drain and cool. While potatoes are boiling, assemble a board of breads, meats, fruits and vegetables to your liking. 

3. Heat up Raclette Grill using two tea lights underneath each Raclette pan if your grill is not electric. If you don't have a Raclette Grill, heat up a non stick pan or cast iron on your stove top over low heat. Do not turn the heat up any higher as you risk burning the cheese and not allowing it to melt properly. 

4. Once grill or pan is hot, place a slice of Raclette in each Raclette pan or on your cast iron. Using a fork, gently drip and spread out strained Zia Hatch Green Chile over the cheese to let it melt into it. 

5. Wait for 5-10 minutes or as long as necessary until the cheese is melted and bubbling. 

6. Assemble a plate of selections from your board of meats, cheese, etc. Using a Raclette scraper or spoon / knife, gently spoon the melted Raclette over your food. 

7. Repeat as necessary until you're satisfied and full.
